The Trans-Sumatra Highway

Martina Tobing, Contributor, Tarutung, North Sumatra


The Trans-Sumatra Highway winds as a two-way, two-lane, fraying ribbon through the length of the island of Sumatra, connecting Banda Aceh in the north and Bandar Lampung in the south and many cities and towns in
between.

It is over 2,500 kilometers long, and is pretty much the only road available for city-to-city travel.

The long and very challenging road is often mountainous and plagued by landslides, floods, huge potholes and thousands of sharp bends. It is always in repair somewhere, narrowing the road even more.

The available road surface, which is officially for two lanes of traffic, is way too narrow for the huge, overloaded, blue-tarped trucks that frequent the highway. Even personal cars must cling to the edge of the road when passing.

It is common to see a group of people scratching their heads and hunched around a truck that has slid off the road in an effort to avoid an oncoming vehicle, sitting with its left wheels dug into the soft sandy side of the road, dangerously tilted to the left.

When, in 1984, we traveled the Trans-Sumatra Highway from the southern tip of Sumatra to Medan, it was an adventurous, if not dangerous, trip as it was during a very wet rainy season that caused the road to be at many places impassable.

Cars, trucks and buses were cornered in sharp bends, others had slid halfway down muddy hillsides and others again had dug themselves so deep into the mud it looked as if they would never get out again.

But, the memories of this road are far more of beauty and amazement of the never-ending change of landscape and the fascinating stream of human life that passed by the window; of mountainsides going straight up or falling steeply down; of simple houses glued to the mountain’s edge built on meager sticks for support; of clothes being laundered by a little stream or pipe of water right by the road; of laughing
and running schoolchildren flooding the roads with no apparent fear of the traffic; and of the late afternoon trek by mothers and children to bathe with buckets of soap and toothbrushes in hand, large washbowls with dishes balanced on their heads.

During recent travels, we realized again that we should not judge the road from the perspective of western comforts; it is an arduous ride in whatever vehicle.

But, it shows us the beauty of this part of Indonesia in a nutshell.

http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...ERANG/Article/



THE RM5 billion Pengerang Independent Deepwater Petroleum Terminal (PIDPT) project, which will be completed about four years from now, is targeted to contribute RM19.8 billion in gross national income and create 14,100 jobs by 2020.

The project, part of the mammoth Pengerang Petroleum Hub project, had its ground breaking by Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman yesterday.

It will complement Petronas' RM60,000 billion Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (Rapid) complex with its crude oil refining capacity, that will be larger than those in Kerteh, Terengannu and Malacca.

The project will start next year and is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Ghani said Pengerang was chosen as the location for the deepwater petroleum terminal project as its shore has the necessary depth of 24m which enables very large crude carriers (VLCCs) and ultra-large crude carriers (ULCCs) to berth.

He said the economic potential and spin-offs from the project will be enormous given its proximity to Singapore as well as Pengerang's location in a major shipping trade lane between China and India.

"Pengerang is one of the most visible project under the Oil, Gas and Energy National Key Economic Area. It is now the intention of the government to transform Pengerang into a world class oil and gas hub similar to Rotterdam in Holland," said Ghani.

The project at Tanjung Kapal, Pengerang, is being developed by Pengerang Terminals Sdn Bhd, a joint-venture company between Dialog Group Bhd, Dutch-Company Royal Vopak and State Secretary Johor Incorporated.

Also present at the ground breaking ceremony were Dialog Group executive chairman Ngau Boon Keat and Royal Vopak (Asia Division) president Patrick van der Voort.

Ngau said Pengerang has what it takes to grow to become a large oil refinery and petrochemical manufacturing centre and also an oil, petrochemical and liquefied natural gas trading hub within the next five to 10 years.

Voort, meanwhile, said the Pengerang Terminal marks Vopak's third presence in Malaysia, with the others located in Kerteh and Pasir Gudang.

Vopak is the world's largest independent provider of conditioned storage facilities for bulk liquids with 84 terminals in 31 countries.

"We are excited about this new addition to our Asia's portfolio and are confident of the prospects of the Pengerang Terminal," said Voort.

The Pengerang terminal will be the second largest of its kind in Asia, with close to 1.3 million cubic m in capacity.

PENGERANG (Johor): A local oil and gas company wants to transform this south-eastern part of Johor into the Rotterdam of Asia within 20 years.

Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands and one of the world's busiest ports, has reputedly the biggest petroleum terminal in the world.

In an area best known for its lobster and seafood dishes, work is being carried out on 344ha of reclaimed land to house a huge deepwater pertroleum terminal.

“Once ready, the RM5bil terminal can store up to five million cubic metres of oil,” said Pengerang Independent Deepwater Terminal Sdn Bhd chairman Ngau Boon Keat.

With 40 years' experience in the oil and gas sector, Ngau said Pengerang was ideal for the project as it is located right in the heart of shipping routes to the Middle East and China.

“We aim to make Pengerang the Rotterdam of Asia as the Dutch port is known throughout the world for having the largest petroleum terminal,” he said on Friday.

The project will be built in four phases, with the first phase of reclamation work expected to be completed next year.

Part of the terminal is expected to be ready by the first quarter of 2014.

“The terminal is on track,” said Ngau, who is executive chairman of the Dialog Group, which is a partner in the project along with the Johor Government and Royal Vopak NV, a Dutch company dealing in oil and natural gas-related products.

Ngau said the deepwater petroleum terminal would create more than 5,000 jobs, adding that Malaysians working overseas in the oil and gas sectors were expected to return to work here.

He said there were Malaysian skilled workers and experts working in the sector in the Middle East and Singapore.

“This is a shame. Many Malaysians are working in Singapore's refinery in Jurong,” he said.

He recalled that when he first obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand in the 70s, it was hard for him to get a job in Malaysia in the oil and gas sector.

“I went for a walk-in interview at Mobil Singapore Pte Ltd, where I was offered a job as a refinery engineer. I worked for five years from 1975 in Petronas, when it first started.

“Malaysia has the skilled workers and the source for natural oil. I believe with this terminal, the industry can go much further and contribute significantly to our economy,” he said.

Johor Oil and Gas, a corporation under the Mentri Besar's office, said the state government was assessing the value of the houses and land of those affected by the project.

Petronas to announce RM50bil complex in Johor

Petronas' Rapid project to meet high demand
Published: 2012/05/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

KUALA LUMPUR: The US$20 billion refinery and petrochemical integrated development (RAPID) project to be undertaken by Petronas in southern Johor will be timely in meeting burgeoning demand for energy and petrochemical products especially in Asia in the next 20 years.

To be launched by His Royal Highness the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar on Sunday, the project would also enhance both Malaysia's and the region's petrochemical industry, attracting investments from world class oil, gas and petrochemical firms.

It would transform southern Johor into a refining and petrochemical centre, complementing existing complexes in Malaysia's eastern corridors and in Singapore.

More importantly, the sprawling 2,000-hectare RAPID complex would also trigger economic activities for Pengerang, creating thousands of jobs in view of the massive spin-offs from ancillary and supporting services.

Petronas Chief Operating Officer Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin said timely implementation of RAPID would be crucial as global energy demand was set to increase between 38 and 39 per cent in the next 20 years.

"This is the largest complex Petronas would be undertaking, with the refinery, earmarked for commissioning by end-2016, able to refine 300,000 barrels of crude oil per day while petrochemical plants would come on stream in 2017," he told Bernama.

It would be bigger than that of Petronas' Melaka, Kertih and Gebeng complexes combined in a single location.

As far as end products and applications for petrochemicals are concerned, "we take for granted day-to-day living conveniences such as plastics and food wrapping.

"(But) their demand growth would be significant in Asean given its proximity (to Malaysia) and its combined population in excess of 600 million," he said.

Wan Zulkiflee, who is also Petronas Executive Vice-President for Downstream Business, said RAPID would be able to meet this demand.

Demographic changes in China and India, including a rising middle-income populace, urbanisation, lifestyle changes plus rising demand from the auto construction and electrical industries, would impact the petrochemical market positively.

RAPID would also be able to meet the government's requirements for higher emission standards for petroleum products to be imposed in the near future.

"We want to be prepared for this,” Wan Zulkiflee said, adding that gasoline and diesel to be produced by RAPID's refinery would meet the Euro 4 and 5 fuel specifications.

The refinery will be designed to process imported crude oil, including Petronas' equity crudes from some of its overseas upstream ventures.

"We can't totally depend on local crude to feed our refinery to meet demand, so diversification of feedstock leads to security of energy supply in the local market," he said.

Other petroleum products from the refinery would include jet fuel while a naptha cracker would churn out three million tonnes of products such as ethylene, propylene, C4 and C5 olefins to feed the petrochemical plants in the complex.

A stand-alone crude oil refinery would be a tough business, Wan Zulkiflee said, which was why coupling it with a petrochemical complex in an integrated development promised higher economic returns on investment.

More than that, RAPID is not just about a refinery and petrochemical plants, but would create a new industry spawning tremendous spin-offs down the value chain offering opportunities for other companies.

"Like in Kertih, we foresee end-product manufacturers like cable and plastics producers, and even specialty products like vitamins, personal care products and perfumes, to take advantage of the complex's output," he said.

Providing a progress update on the project, he said the detailed feasibility study was completed end-2011 and "we are now in the front end engineering design (FEED) stage while land acquisition has already started."

Concurrently, the national oil corporation was screening potential joint venture partners who can bring in technologies, as well as, expertise in project management, plant operations and marketing to form partnerships for various facilities within RAPID.

The equities that joint venture partners will take in RAPID's various facilities would determine how much they invest in the US$20 billion project, with Petronas expected to take up majority portions. - Bernama

Malaysia: High Court Sets Aside Injunction on Samalajau Port
Apr 30th, 2012
http://www.dredgingtoday.com/2012/04...samalaju-port/



According to the Borneo Post Online, a Kuala Lumpur High Court last Friday sets aside an ex-parte injunction granted to Integrated Marine Works Sdn Bhd (IMW) to restrain Bintulu Port Holdings Berhad (BPHB) from receiving, evaluating or awarding any tender for the construction of the new Samalajau Port in Bintulu.
Works on RM1.5 billion Samalaju Port to start in January next year
Posted on May 12, 2012, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/05...ary-next-year/

KUCHING: Works on the interim facilities for the proposed development of the RM1.5 billion Samalaju Port near Bintulu is expected to start by January next year, Bintulu Port Holdings Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Mior Ahmad Baiti Mior Lub Ahmad said yesterday.

He said the proposal on the general layout had been submitted to the State Planning Authority on December 8 last year while PricewaterhouseCoopers had already conducted all the relevant studies and recommendations, including for project funding.

“We are now in the final stages of concluding the deal and the funding aspect has been discussed with our major shareholders involving Petronas, Sarawak State Financial Secretary and Kumpulan Wang Persaraan,” he told reporters after Bintulu Port’s annual general meeting here.

He said tenders involving several packages for the full development of the port, which was located under the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), would be called soon.

Once fully operational, he said, Samalaju port was expected to handle an annual cargo throughput of 18 million metric tonnes compared with 16 millon metric tonnes of non Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) cargo currently being handled by Bintulu Port.

However, he was confident the cargo volume could rise up to 30 million metric tonnes annually, according to demand, in view of the potentials in the oil and gas industry as well as bulk fertiliser trade during the first phase of development.

The company had been given the task to build, own and operate the proposed port on some 450 hectares of land earmarked by the Sarawak government, he said.

He said Samalaju Port is to serve industries located at Samalaju Industrial Park, 60km from Bintulu Port and its infrastructure development would be planned accordingly to serve the anticipated cargo generated by the industries within the SCORE.

Meanwhile, Mior Ahmad Baiti said crude palm oil (CPO) cargo had overtaken container cargo as one of the leading contributors to Bintulu Port’s revenue.

With containers being handled at the port relegated to the third leading revenue contributor, he said, the sector saw a drop to 215,451 TEUs (20 foot equivalent units) in 2011 from 251,296 TEUs in 2010.

The group cargo throughput rose by 2.65 per cent to 41.7 million tonnes in 2011 from 40.61 million tonnes in 2010.

LNG still remained the major contributor with 24.89 million tonnes of cargo throughput and the remaining 16.81 million tonnes from non LNG cargoes, he said. — Bernama

Taiwan's Kuokuang, a unit of CPC, may invest between US$10 to 12 billion in Malaysia
Business Times | May 14, 2012
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Kuokuang Petrochemical Technology Co, 43 percent-owned by state-run refiner CPC Corp, is evaluating whether to invest in a refining and petrochemical project led by Petronas in Malaysia’s Johor, Jessica Tang, a spokeswoman for CPC, said by phone.

Kuokuang may invest between US$10 billion and US$12 billion in the project, if the Taiwan government approves the investment, Tang said. A decision may be made around mid 2013, she said. -- Bloomberg

The Prime Minister said Petronas Rapid was among the high-impact projects under the government’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), which would bring about a big change to the people’s socioeconomic status, particularly in Johor.



In terms of investment value, Petronas Rapid’s investment projection was three times that of Klang Valley’s My Rapid Transit project.

Petronas also recently signed an agreement with German chemical company BASF SE to develop, build and oversee the world-class amenities and chemical plants, which would be set up at the Rapid complex.

Kuokuang Will Take Part in Malaysia’s US$39 billion Mega Petrochemical Project
Taiwan Economic News | 2012/05/14
http://news.cens.com/cens/html/en/ne...ner_40163.html

TAIPEI, May 14, 2012 (CENS)--Najib Razak, prime minister of Malaysia, announced that Taiwan petrochemical firms will take part in the US$39 billion oil refinery and petrochemical project of Malaysia’s state oil enterprise. CPC Taiwan confirmed the news yesterday (May 13), saying that Kuokuang Petrochemical, an affiliate of the company, is in talk with local government for investing US$10-12 billion in the mega project and is waiting the approval of Taiwan’s authority for the plan.

Should Kuokuang Petrochemical switch its investment to Malaysia, massive numbers of Taiwanese mid- and downstream petrochemical firms will follow suit, seriously impacting the output value of the nation’s petrochemical industry.

At a press conference yesterday, Najib revealed that a Taiwanese petrochemical firm has pledged to make massive investment in Johore state, as part of the mega oil refinery and petrochemical project of Malaysia’s state oil enterprise. Although Najib didn’t specify the identity of the investor, CPC Taiwan confirmed that it is planning to invest in Malaysia and is conducting feasibility study for the project, adding, though, the project needs the approval of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and other government units in charge.

Najib noted that the general petrochemical project contains oil refineries and naphtha cracking plants, capable of processing 10,000 barrel of crude oil a day and 800,000 metric tons of petroleum a year, respectively, at the initial stage, which will rise to 450,000 barrels and 3.8 million metric tons eventually.

The project, if proceeding smoothly, will entail US$120 billion of investment in the next six years and will become a major petrochemical plant in the Asia-Pacific region.

Currently, Malaysia’s state oil enterprise is discussing with nine to 10 potential partners for the feasibility of the project and is conducting last-stage talk with the Taiwanese investor. The entire project is expected to be settled in the middle next year.

The project may encounter some difficulties, though. In May last year, Najib announced a US$20 billion petrochemical project in Johore state, which, however, has triggered stiff opposition from local residents due to environmental concern.

Kuokuang is a joint venture from state-owned CPC Taiwan and some private enterprises. CPC Taiwan is the largest shareholder, owning 43%, followed by Far Eastern Group and Chang Chun Group, each with 20% stake.

Analyst: HSBB outpaces other broadband networks in region

Sourced from: http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...8&sec=business

Tuesday May 15, 2012

NEW DELHI: Telekom Malaysia Bhd’s (TM) high-speed broadband (HSBB) network is comfortably outpacing other National Broadband Networks (NBNs) being deployed in the region, such as rival Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (NGNBN) as well as those being rolled out in Australia and New Zealand.

According to Informa Telecoms & Media (ITM), the HSBB project, a 70:30 joint venture between TM and the Government, had 310,000 subscribers by end-April and had passed over 1.2 million premises in the country with the network set to be completed both on time and under budget.

“The HSBB deployment has gone so well in Malaysia that there is now talk of extending the network beyond its original target of 20% of the total homes in the country and taking it into more areas outside the Klang Valley, with strong interest from several state governments in having the HSBB extended into their states,” said the analyst house, which has its headquarters in London.

The HSBB’s progress is way in front of Singapore’s NGNBN which has only around 130,000 subscribers so far. And although deployed to nearly 90% of buildings in the city-state, it is still not available to the majority of households because of delays in completing the in-building wiring.

Meanwhile, network deployments in the Australian and New Zealand markets lagged way behind the two regional frontrunners with Australia’s highly-controversial A$43bil state-owned NBN having only around 7,000 subscribers while New Zealand’s Ultra Fast Broadband deployment had only around 500 subscribers.

“There is no doubt that Malaysia’s decision to stick with the incumbent, TM, in deploying its next-generation broadband networks is definitely bearing fruit at the moment,” ITM senior analyst Tony Brown said in a statement.

“The other NBN markets in the region have deployed more complex NBN models with new and independent entities created to build and operate their NB Nnetworks – and that has taken a lot of time and created some significant teething problems, especially in Australia.”

Nonetheless, Brown said although keeping TM as the key component of the HSBB deployment had facilitated a faster NBN rollout, the Government’s decision not to create an independent wholesale network access operator, as was being done in Australia, could be negative in the longer term.

In addition, he said another problem facing the Malaysian NBN market surrounds content, especially the tight exclusive grip that pay-TV giant Astro has on much of the best TV programming.

”With video set to play such a huge role in the broadband market and with so many operators now launching IPTV (Internet Protocol television) services – including both TM and Maxis – content rights are becoming ever more critical,” said Brown.

“As things stand, an operator like TM is going to find it hard to really break through as an IPTV player unless it either spends a huge amount of money on content or the Government steps in.” _ Bernama

as the Singaporean regulator did a few years ago, and bans exclusive content deals between programmers and pay-TV operators,” he added. – Bernama

Night vision gear for 14 more provincial airports

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines—Fourteen more provincial airports will be equipped by the end of the year with a technology that would enable them to operate even at night, Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas said Thursday.

“Within the year, our airports in Tagbilaran, Legaspi, Dumaguete, Butuan, Ozamiz, Cotabato, Naga, Dipolog, Roxas, Pagadian, Tuguegarao, Busuanga, Surigao, and San Jose in Mindoro will all have a night vision capability,” he told reporters.

To date, only 12 airports are night-rated, he added. These include Manila, Bacolod, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Puerto Princesa, Iloilo, Kalibo, Tacloban, Cagayan de Oro, Laoag and Zamboanga.

Domestic carriers bundle their departures during daytime so that all of them would be able to take off from their points of departure before sunset.

This has contributed to congestion and slotting problems at the Naia terminals.

“All of them are in a hurry to come back before sunset, where provincial airports stop operating due to the absence of runway lights or night-vision technology,” Roxas said in a previous interview.

He added that the night vision capability would improve visual awareness in smoky, foggy or dark environments.

With the new technology, air carriers can choose other slots or schedules so that departures are spread out evenly, thus avoiding congestion.

SEB opens 3 more power transmission line projects for bidding
By JACK WONG Monday May 21, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=643

KUCHING: Sarawak Energy Bhd (SEB) has dished out three more power transmission line projects for open bidding, including a 275kV line from Mambong near here to neighbouring West Kalimantan to facilitate the export of electricity to the Indonesian province.

The other two 275kV transmission lines will supply electricity from SEB Samalaju sub-station to OM Materials (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd's proposed manganese and ferro alloy smelting plant and Japan's Tokuyama Corp polycrystalline silicon plant (phase II), both in Samalaju Industrial Park, Bintulu.

Tenders for the Tokuyama (phase II) transmission line project are being evaluated. The 132kV transmission line to its phase I project is near completion.

SEB has just awarded a contract to Sawaja Timur Sdn Bhd to build a 275kV line to supply power to Asia Minerals Ltd's (AML) manganese and ferroalloy smelter, sources told StarBiz.

Construction work on the AML smelting plant is expected to start in the next few months on completion of earthworks.

SEB has completed another 275kV transmission line to connect Press Metal Bhd's aluminium smelting plant in Samalaju. The line was “energised” nearly two months ago.

SEB is expected to award soon the contract for the construction of a 500kV backbone line stretching from Similajau, Bintulu to Kuching. It is now carrying out evaluations on the bidding companies.

According to SEB chief executive officer Torstein Dale Sjotveit, the 500kV backbone line would cost about RM3bil. It is expected to be ready in 2014.

The proposed Mambong-West Kalimantan transmission line, about 45km in length, would connect the SEB substation in Mambong, Jalan Penrissen to Bengkayang in West Kalimantan.

“The line will take 22 months to construct,” Sjotveit told StarBiz on Friday. Tender for the project closes on July 2.

Under a power exchange agreement (PEA) term sheet signed last July between SEB and PT PLN (Persero), the Indonesian power utility, SEB would sell the bulk of the electricity to West Kalimantan.

SEB would export up to 230 MW to PLN from mid-2014. Plans are also in store for Sarawak to export electricity to neighbouring Brunei and Sabah under the Brunei/Indonesia/Malaysia/Philippines-East Asean Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) agenda.

Sjotveit said the second transmission line from Bakun hydro dam to SEB Samalaju substation had been completed.

The 2,400-MW Bakun dam is expected to supply 1,771 MW when all its eight turbines are operational. So far, only four turbines have been commissioned while the rest are under various stages of installation.

The Bakun power will be consumed mainly by energy-intensive industries in Samalaju Industrial Park within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score).

Under the power purchase agreements signed, SEB has committed a long-term supply of 500 MW to OM Materials, 480 MW to Press Metal and 270 MW to AML. It is not known how much electricity Tokuyama will buy from SEB.

Press Metal will be the first among the four pioneer Score investors to commence production in the next two months.

To complement Bakun, SEB is now developing the 944-MW Murum hydro dam, upstream of Bakun dam in the upper reaches of Rejang River in central Sarawak. Murum is scheduled for commissioning in 2014.

SEB is expected to complete later this year a transmission line from Murum hydro site to Murum junction.

Sjotveit had said recently that SEB would call for tenders to construct a proposed 600-MW coal-fired power station in Balingian, Mukah Division this year. SEB now owns a 270-MW coal-fired station in Mukah.

He has said that SEB's 2012 priorities included accelerating the next round of power generation projects.

MRT-7 construction on track

By: Doris C. Dumlao
Philippine Daily Inquirer
4:51 am | Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

MANILA, Philippine – The construction of the $1.6-billion Metro Railway Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) linking North Edsa to Bulacan is set to begin as its proponent, the San Miguel group, has awarded the contract to build the elevated railway to a consortium led by Marubeni-DMCI.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange Tuesday, DMCI Holdings announced that the Marubeni-DMCI consortium—an unincorporated joint venture between itself and Japanese trading giant Marubeni Corp.—had signed the contract for the MRT-7 project.

Myanmar to build power plant with US, Japan firms
22 May 2012 | Last updated at 12:50PM
http://www.nst.com.my/latest/myanmar...-firms-1.86509

YANGON: Myanmar has planned to build more power plants with companies from the United States, Japan and South Korea in an effort to cope with electricity shortage in the country in particular in the summer season, official media said today.

The companies which the Ministry of Electric Power-2 will be cooperating with are General Electric Co and Caterpillar Co of the US, J Power Co of Japan, and BKB Co of South Korea, Xinhua news agency quoted reports from local media.

Reports said a 600-megawatt (mw) coal-fired plant near Yangon will be built on a joint-venture basis with Japan's J Power Co, while another 500-mw gas-fired power plant is to be carried out in collaboration with BKB Co of South Korea.

Projects to be implemented with the US companies were not disclosed.

At present, there are 18 hydropower, one coal-fired and 10 gas-fired power stations in Myanmar, generating a maximum of about 1,610 mw in monsoon and 1,340 mw in summer.

Of the 1,610 mw, 1,270 mw is generated by hydropower when a full storage capacity of water is available in monsoon.

Although consumption in monsoon is 1,560 mw, which is less than production but enough for distribution, it is 1,850 mw in summer -- far exceeding production as claimed by the ministry. -- BERNAMA
